The Emirates is a minefield for the leaders. City lost (1-0) in October and Liverpool (3-1) in February. Mikel Arteta has beaten Jürgen Klopp to the punch and is now (if he wasn't already) in the battle for the Premier League title. The Gunners are now just two points behind the Reds at the top... with Manchester City trailing, five points behind with two games in hand on Liverpool and the Londoners. The English League is red hot.

Defeat to Arsenal shows who is Liverpool's indispensable player

Liverpool had gone more than four months without defeat in the Premier League. In September, they were controversially beaten 2-1 by Tottenham in north London. And 15 games unbeaten, they returned to the same part of the English capital to visit Arsenal and were dealt a severe blow. Arteta's side bit and ran at the back of a Liverpool side that did not expect to be countered with the same weapons they use to do their damage.

The only good news for the Reds was the return of Thiago nine months after his hip injury. Liverpool turned deadly at the Emirates. Klopp smiled resignedly. Arsenal gave him a cannonball that could change the course of the tournament. City already see the top. They have been given life.
